SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA - August 22, 2012 CellTrust Corporation, the recognized worldwide leader in secure mobile communication (www.celltrust.com), today announced that customers using CellTrust SecureSMS® are protected against the recently discovered security flaws on iPhone iOS mobile operating system. CellTrust's SecureSMS®, with its advanced security architecture, validates and authenticates the senders and receivers of each secure text message, ensuring message integrity and authenticity.
A recent blog post by developer and security researcher, pod2g, warns mobile users to "Never trust SMS: iOS text spoofing," and cites a flaw in the implementation of SMS on the iPhone that puts mobile users at risk of their confidential information or identity being compromised or exposed by criminals through simple text messages. This clearly shows the need for SecureSMS.
"This is not the first time that mobile operating systems have been exposed for their vulnerability to SMS spoofing and phishing, and the iOS operating system is certainly not the only one at risk of SMS security flaws," said Sean Moshir, CEO and Chairman of CellTrust. "Mobile communications security has been CellTrust's mission ever since the company was founded in 2006. We knew that mobile users were exposed to a variety of security risks, and we developed solutions to protect mobile users and others in the mobile ecosystem from being exposed to these threats."
Moshir continued, "Any consumer or business entity in government, healthcare or financial services who is using CellTrust SecureSMS can rest assured that their text messages are safeguarded against security risks, no matter which mobile operating system they use."

In addition to SecureSMS®, CellTrust also provides secure email to mobile and SecureVoice™ solutions - a suite which delivers complete security for all mobile email, voice, and text communications.
